What Services do Positive Bones Offer?

Positive Bones offer a range of support services to people with limb differences and limb loss, helping them to access funding for prosthetics, services to support their recovery and equipment to enable them to continue participating in career aspirations and hobbies. Positive Bones focus on wellness and helping people overcome the barriers that limb loss and limb difference can have on life through specialist equipment, support and prosthesis. 

They help a wide variety of people in a variety of ways, from helping an amputee to get a new prosthetic arm to helping a gardener who had a knee replacement to access raised beds so they can continue to enjoy gardening. 

Alongside helping people access equipment and funding, they also help people access support in the form of:

  • Occupational therapy

  • Physiotherapy

  • Specially designed prosthesis 

  • Help for families 

  • Support with hospital visits

  • Community support 

  • Recovery motivation and encouragement

How Will The Donation be Used?

If Positive Bones win the Discount Promo Codes charity poll this August, then the winning donation will go towards helping more people with limb loss and limb difference to access the support they need. This can be in terms of funding to help people access prosthetics and equipment, as well as providing support and advice to people going through amputation and limb difference. 

Positive Bones are a team of volunteers and trustees, meaning that all donations made go directly towards helping those with limb loss and limb difference to get the support they need. 


How Can I Access Funding for Equipment or Prosthetics from Positive Bones? 

If you are in need of support following limb loss or difference then you can visit the Positive Bones  Apply Now page. When you fill in their application form, you can describe the type of support and their team will be in contact to let you know the process of your application. 

In order to be eligible for support with Positive Bones you must live in the UK or Isle of Man, be looking for support in buying an item of equipment, service or a prosthetic to help you with your limb loss or difference and have not gained your limb loss/difference through working in the armed forces. 

The application process consists of four steps:

  1. Think about what you need and what would benefit you most before beginning your application. 

  2. Read the application guidelines and information to ensure that you fill out the form correctly and halt any delays in your application. 

  3. Gather the evidence of your limb loss or difference and how the specialist equipment will help e.g. a letter from a doctor, as well as evidence for the equipment and where it can be purchased e.g. from a website or supplier. 

  4. Apply for the funding you need using the application form. 

They provide grants of up to £3000 and successful grants will be paid within 6 months of a successful application, meaning that you will need to purchase the equipment within that time.
